Big Loud Records has announced the signing of country-folk singer-songwriter Charles Wesley Godwin.
Born, raised and currently living in Morgantown, West Virginia, Godwin is influenced by artists such as Kris Kristofferson, John Prine, Ryan Bingham, Willie Nelson and Chris Knight. His two already released LPs, Seneca and How the Mighty Fall, illustrate the sound he has created that references blue-collar sensibilities, cinematic country-folk soundscapes and sharp-minded songwriting.
“I’m thrilled to partner up with Big Loud Records for this next chapter of my career. Their enthusiasm and belief in my music matches that of my family, friends, bandmates, and team,” says Godwin. “Ultimately that is what is most important. It’s been an unbelievably good experience getting to know Seth [England], Nate [Yetton], and the entire Big Loud staff. I’m so excited for what’s ahead and can’t wait to share new music with the world.”
“We’re honored to be partnering with Charles Wesley Godwin in this capacity,” shares England, Big Loud Partner / CEO. “I first heard about Charles last year from my brother Eric; fatefully, the timing aligned perfectly with when our company was exploring endeavors in alternative genres, branching out into Americana, indie, folk, roots, and more. I was blown away immediately by Charles’ undeniable talent, grit, songwriting ability, and distinct perspective; it truly sets him apart. Big Loud is excited to stand proudly with him and his team as we launch a new chapter for our company and bring this body of music to the world.”
Godwin’s year ahead includes headline club show dates out on the road, as well as support slots on tours with left-of-center chart-topper Zach Bryan and country outlaw Cody Jinks. Godwin is managed by Arthur Penhallow Jr. and Reed Turner at True Grit Management.
“The most important thing to Charles was finding a partner who would fully support his artistic vision. Big Loud is clearly committed to that and their passion for Charles’ music is unmatched,” notes Penhallow Jr. “We look forward to working with them during this exciting next phase of his career.”
“Charles Wesley Godwin is a force to be reckoned with as a songsmith, in the studio, and on stage,” Yetton, adds Big Loud Records VP of A&R. “We are more than fortunate that Charles would trust Big Loud Records with this incredibly exciting new chapter in his exploding career. The best is yet to come for him.”
